That is a bad taste I have swallowed plenty myself. Being in this hobby it is probably an occupational hazard.

You'll be fine. It happens to everyone who uses a manual syphon eventually.

I've had the unfortunate luck of having this happen to me before, trying to use a manual syphon to clean a tank when i was younger. Never thought a thing about it and its been I dont know how many years and i'm fine.

Its nothing to worry about. :)

peace. love. & bettas.
